COVID-19 : health measures during EquipHotel

As a trade show organiser, our aim and intention is to continue facilitating opportunities to network, discover new things and generate business, to promote innovation and create and foster debate with content specifically tailored to our communities.

Our priority is the health and safety of our staff, customers and partners and our goal is to give you a safe and stress-free trade show experience.

Our actions are guided by health measures recommended by the French Government and the World Health Organization (WHO). Reed Expositions France is also actively involved in work being led by UNIMEV, the French trade association for event professionals, to develop protection measures for trade shows. 

1. Mandatory face masks

Face masks will be mandatory for trade show participants, service providers and Reed Expositions France employees. Face mask vending machines will be available on the exhibition premises.

2. Hand sanitiser will be available during the event.

Touch-free hand sanitiser stations will be located throughout the premises and in common areas (conference rooms, demonstration spaces, etc.) 

3. Digitalised access passes and payment

In order to avoid queues and frequent contact, we use digital passes wherever possible, so remember to print your badge or ticket before the trade show.

We also recommend contactless payment.

4. Compliance with capacity limits and regulation of visitor traffic flows

We will ensure that maximum capacity limits are complied with in exhibition halls, conference spaces and food service areas...
Floor markings and a one-way system will help you follow social distancing measures

5. Increased disinfection

Cleaning will be reinforced in all exhibition spaces and high-contact areas will be frequently disinfected.

6. New meeting spaces and conference rooms

Spaces will be reorganised to enable face-to-face meetings while following social distancing measures.

These measures will also be in place for conference rooms.

7. On-site food services

Tables will be arranged to follow social distancing measures, with 1 m between each table and no more than 10 people per table. Health inspections will be increased and staff will be trained to follow health measures.  

8. Special communication and safety reminders

Staff and participants will be reminded of health and protective measures before and throughout the event. Our goal is to open the doors to our trade shows responsibly, while protecting participants and our employees.

9. Management of people with COVID symptoms

A medical team will be present for the duration of the event. Suspected COVID-19 cases will be isolated and handled by suitable health professionals.

We are excited to welcome you back to our trade shows so that you can get back in touch with your professional community, meet customers, grow your business, and check out all the latest and future trends in your sector.
